Welsh Football

It was a pleasure talking to Dave Collins about football this week, ironically about Isle of Man football but the conversation soon moved on to his beloved Welsh Football. He is very excited to announce that the 250th edition of the Welsh Football Magazine will be out shortly and, of course, I told him I would be delighted to give it a shout out!

Keep up the great work, Dave


Welsh Football magazine has published an updated 2023-24 edition of their FOOTBALL GAZETTEER OF WALES (Cyfeirlyfr Meysydd Pêl-droed Cymru)

Last year’s experimental edition of this directory-style publication proved very popular with groundhoppers and other followers of Welsh football, as it provided the first comprehensive listing of all football grounds used at every level of the adult men’s and women’s  game.  

The 2023-24 edition once again lists every club and the ground(s) they use, organised by league. 

Directions are included, with postcodes, nearest railway stations and public transport advice. 

The Gazetteer retails for £6.00 (£8.50 including postage for mail order) and is published under ISBN 978-1-7396083-1-6 and is available direct from the publisher or through the Books Council of Wales and many independent bookshops around the country. 


Welsh Football magazine will reach another milestone with its 250th issue in December 2023. 

Launched in 1992, the magazine aimed to fill a gap in the market by covering the domestic and international football scene in Wales.  The nation was asserting its independence from English football and within months we’d see the formation of the first real national league – the League of Wales (now Cymru Premier). 

Run by unpaid enthusiasts as a non-profit publication, the magazine has now been published continuously for 32 years and has developed from humble beginnings to a professional quality product, appearing eight times each season. 

The first edition of the season, every August, is the annual GUIDE TO WELSH FOOTBALL, the only comprehensive annual preview of the domestic football system in Wales that covers every region of the country and every level of the adult men’s and women’s game.  And every June the season’s run is completed with a comprehensive END OF SEASON REVIEW covering all the season’s honours and outcomes. In between these, the six other issues cover news, articles and comment as the season unfolds, with regular club and football history features.
